I grew up with Linda on the Southside. We went to Horace Mann grammar school and Agudath Achim together. We spent many weekends together and had several sleepovers. She was sweet, kindhearted and fun.
As an afterthought, her bedroom was the entire attic converted as a birthday gift to her from her parents Theresa and Sam Gerdy. It was exquisite! My condolences to her children and grandchildren.
